Boston Red Sox

Tribe Heads to Gotham to Continue Pennant Battle

January 31, 2014 |

Losers of two of three in Boston, the Indians left Beantown last night and headed for New York to start their next, “biggest series of the season.”

The Tribe’s three game series at Fenway Park was the last series the two teams will play this season. They have one game remaining against one another on Sept. 22 in Cleveland. After winning just one game of the series the Indians have slipped a half game behind Boston for first place and now only lead the New York Yankees by a half game for second place.

In a best-of-three series for first place in the American League with the Boston Red Sox this week, the Indians could easily lay claim victory in two games. However, while they beat the Red Sox yesterday, they beat themselves today.

Lemon Shuts Down Sox and Regains First Place; Indians 9, Red Sox 0

January 29, 2014 |

Every time it looks like it could be the end of the road for the Cleveland Indians they seem to come back stronger.

After a devastating defeat last night at Fenway Park, the Indians rebounded this afternoon for a commanding 9-0 victory in front of 30,745 Boston faithful. Cleveland’s victory moves them back into first place by a half game over the Red Sox in this tightly-contested, high-pressure series. The Tribe struck for seven runs in the first four innings, sending Boston starter Denny Galehouse to the showers quickly and many Boston fans home early due to the extreme heat.

Bob Lemon matched the offenses dominance with a four-hit shutout of the vaunted Red Sox lineup. After using five Indians’ pitchers yesterday, the leader of the Tribe pitching staff allowed two hits in the first inning, but only surrendered two more for the game on his way to his eighth shutout of the season.

Stephens Homer Gives Boston Walkoff Win; Red Sox 9, Indians 8

January 28, 2014 |

August 24, 1948

In a best-of-three battle for the right to first place entering the last month of the season, the two teams looked as evenly as matched as possible as the top two contenders in a heavyweight battle. However, the Boston Red Sox struck the final hit with a one-out, two-run homer by Vern Stephens in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Boston a 9-8 walkoff win.

The final blast was the result of two floundering bullpens in the final two innings. More importantly, when part of the 34,172 fans in attendance stormed onto the field tonight to celebrate and carry Stephens off the field, they carried the rights to first place too. The blast was Stephens’ 27th home run of the season and league leading 115th RBI. Stephens’ biggest hit of the season came off the only pitch Russ Christopher threw.

Indians Head to Fenway to Open 16-Game Road Trip

January 27, 2014 |

After losing three straight to the cellar-dwellar Chicago White Sox at home this weekend, the Cleveland Indians embark on their final major road trip of the season tomorrow night at Fenway Park.

Cleveland will venture to Detroit for a three game series in late September, but otherwise the Indians take to the train for the last trip of the season today. While it is the last road trip of the season, it is also the most brutal and critical for the Indians and their pennant hopes. The Tribe will play 17 games in six cities before returning home on Sept. 8.

Boudreau Steals Home—Zoldak Steals Show; Indians 6, Red Sox 1

January 5, 2014 |

When the Cleveland Indians traded Bill Kennedy to the St. Louis Browns in June, this is the version of Sam Zoldak that they wanted to get back.

Zoldak (6-7, 3.81) was outstanding in game two of Sunday’s doubleheader, pitching arguably his best game as an Indian.  Zoldak threw a complete game, one run, seven-hitter to lead the Indians to a 6-1 victory over Boston.  The win moves the Tribe percentage points ahead of the Red Sox and vaults the Indians into second place, one game behind front-running Philadelphia.

Edwards Hurt, Cleveland still Hammers Boston; Indians 12, Red Sox 2

January 5, 2014 |

August 1, 1948

Indians right fielder Hank Edwards was taken to Lakeside Hospital to treat an injured shoulder during the third inning of Sunday’s first game, too early to see his ball club steamroll the once-red hot Red Sox by a score of 12-2.

Edwards made an outstanding, acrobatic catch to rob Boston’s Stan Spence of a three run homerun and saved the Tribe’s momentum as well.  Edwards crashed into the outfield wall just in front of the Cleveland bullpen, but held on for the third out of the inning.  Early signs on the injury do not look good.

Cleveland Outslugs Boston, Cools off Hot Sox; Indians 10, Red Sox 9

January 4, 2014 |

July 31, 1948

The first place Boston Red Sox came into Saturday’s game as hot as the summer heat, with a 23-5 record since the fourth of July.  The Cleveland Indians finally brought a touch of cold front with them, just as the calendar is about to roll over into August.  The Indians defeated the Red Sox with a 10-9 extra innings effort at the Stadium on Saturday.

Bob Feller started the game for the Indians and was opposed at the start by former Indian Joe Dobson.  Neither pitcher was particularly effective, but both battled and kept their teams in the ballgame until being pulled in the middle innings.  Both teams’ bullpens had a struggle to keep competitive, however.

Boston Comes Back, Continues to Roll; Red Sox 8, Indians 7

January 3, 2014 |

July 30, 1948

Maybe nothing can stop the Boston Red Sox.

Six runs in the first inning by the Cleveland Indians wasn’t enough as Bobby Doerr, Denny Galehouse and company came back to defeat the Tribe by a score of 8-7.

The surging Red Sox remained the hottest team on the planet, having now won 17 of their previous 19 games.  Doerr and Galehouse were the heroes on Friday; the former slamming three hits including a homerun and the latter allowing just one run on two hits in 8.2 innings out of the bullpen.  Doerr doing damage with his bat is nothing new, as the seven time All-Star has been tormenting American League pitchers for years.  Galehouse, on the other hand, turned in quite an impressive performance for an otherwise mediocre veteran.

Surging Red Sox come to Cleveland for Pivotal Four Games

January 3, 2014 |

July 30, 1948

In a pennant chase, every game and series seems to be more important than the last.  For the Cleveland Indians, the four-game set that brings the Boston Red Sox to the Stadium is the biggest series of the season thus far.

The Red Sox come in red hot, fresh off of an 8-1 beatdown of the Detroit Tigers and winners of 16 of their last 18 ballgames.  The BoSox have battled back from being 11.5 games back on May 30 to take the lead in the American League standings; 0.5 games ahead of second place Philadelphia.  The Indians, meanwhile, are just as cold as Boston is hot, as they have dropped six of their last eight to lose their spot in the catbird seat.

July 29, 1948

Cleveland Indians manager Lou Boudreau announced Wednesday that Gene Bearden will start the opener of a key four-game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Indians at the Stadium this weekend.

The series is a great opportunity for the Indians to make up ground in the American League against the Red Sox, who have been the hottest team in baseball.

Boston has taken each of the last seven matchups between the two ball clubs after Cleveland took six of the first seven games of the season against them.

July 25, 1948

The final touches were applied to a disastrous East Coast trip Sunday afternoon, when the Boston Red Sox defeated the Cleveland Indians 3-0 in front of 32,190 Boston fans who like their pennant chances more each day.

The loss concludes a 6-8 road trip to the east coming out of the All-Star break. Cleveland has now lost four in a row and six of their last seven to end the trip. Like many of their defeats, the Tribe was in the game all afternoon, but narrowly found defeat just inches away from a potential victory.
